Low Fidelity Living 5




Like most good ideas in life, Low Fidelity Living started because I have a big mouth and wanted to impress a group of relative strangers.

“How about putting out a CD-r compilation series that you were encouraged to pirate? “

Now I know it’s not a very original idea, there had been plenty of mix tape chain letters and other similar project in the past, and yes I had already heard about them, but for Ames, Iowa in 2000 it seemed like a pretty neat idea.

Well the idea went over so well in fact that someone from that particular open mic night emailed me about it the next day. With a bit of encouragement from Joe Terry (the Poison Control Center, Solo) and the people at Big Headed Man Productions, Thus was born Low Fidelity Living and the seeds of Workerbee Records.

As I go off and do other projects, I always come back to do another Low Fidelity Living. I might have been naive, and probably still am, but the idea of getting free music to the people who actually want to hear it still appeals to me, and that’s why it’s morphed and continued to this day a decade later.

I hope you enjoy the fruit of bumbling into something special.

Low Fidelity Living 5 will always make me smile, not only did I get a contribution from a living legend and a personal hero of mine (Jad Fair), this is the compilation that has completely changed the face of Workerbee Records. Every track is incredibly good!
